    Today, our civ will be Greece.

    This will be a parliament-based game, with my own little twist:D

    In this game, all elections for all offices will take place every 15 turns, unless legeslation is passed democratically(regardless of actual government),

    President: Anyone can run for president who has his/her party's approval. The Prez. Can make a slave whip, can declare war, can make declaration of emergency, conduct diplomacy, and so forth with 2/3 approval from congress. He can move units without congressional approval, as long as it does not mean doing something that does.

    Senators: Every City has 2 Senators.
    Representatives: Population divided by 2 of a city is it's representative count rounded up.
    Example-
    1 Population- 1 Representative
    2 Population- 1 Representative
    3 Population- 2 Representatives
    4 Population- 2 Representatives

    Senators and Representatives are considered part of congress. Congress can pass any sort of legislation, as long as it does not interfere with the process that this game runs on, and can be realistically executed. Any Senator or Representative can propose legislation. A bill will pass on 3/4 majority.

    Governors: Every city has one governor. THe governor will be elected by the people, which will be persuaded by campaign speeches and propaganda. Governors can manage citizens and specialists and chose production. A governer can be impeached by the prez, with 2/3 congressional approval. A governor may not be impeached unless he has a replacement ready.

    When voting please PM me all of your chosen candidates. Please vote for all offices if possible.

    I reserve the right to make any executive desisions given my physical ownership of the game, and greater knowledge of it. This should not happen however.

    To sign up, tell me your political affiliation, where you live, and what you plan to run for. If you have not announced your political intentions, you will be considered a citizen. Citizens vote for president, governor, and and the senators and representatives in their city.

    You can create a political party at any time, however, i recommend that you pick a pre-made party.

    The Democratic Party
    Supports allocating funds for technological spending, cultural growth, and high taxes.
    Favorite Civic: Universal Suffrage

    The Party Of Ingsoc
    Supports total military mobilization, annihilation of civil liberties, and global domination.
    Favorite Civic: Police State

    Green Party
    Supports higher taxes, avoiding building pastures or chopping down forests when possible.
    Favorite Civic: Environmentalism

    Republican Party
    Supports lower taxes, military production, nationalism.
    Favorite Civic: Nationhood

    Socialist Party
    Supports Big government, financial equality, and high emphasis on science and production.
    Favorite Civic: State Property


    So, without further ado, lets start our initial elections. Be careful guys- this game is in your hands.

    The voting will start once I get everyone on the ballot, in other words, a few minutes. I will announce when the voting starts, and then everyone can start their campaign. After the voting is finished I will start playing.

    EDIT: Yes you can vote for yourself.

    Hello, citizens of Athens! I'd like to kick off my campaign by telling you that I am fully in support of the glories of Science and Culture! We won't need much of a military if we have better technology, and with culture, other cities will be begging to join us! So remember, vote for me, and buy Air On A Stick!

    Dear scholars and peasants, politicians and citizens, I would like to thank you for your wonderful dedication to this glorious city, Athens. My campain for Govenor is currently uncontested, but I would still like to serve the people to my fullest. I support science and specialists, and would support a modest military. Vote Daniel for Govenor and your life will be better! :D
